One-off Workshops for Adults
Try your hand at the beautiful Italic hand with step-by-step instruction and demonstrations from Mary, who has been a calligrapher for over 30 years. Mary will get you started on your calligraphy journey, highlighting what to look for as you learn so that you take home enough knowledge and practical advice to practise and develop on your own.
All materials provided, with an option to purchase the dip pens. Left-handers welcome - please specify when booking as there are special pens for you.
Give your Christmas cards a personal touch this year. Spend a day creating your own design and printing it onto Christmas cards. We will be using relief printing techniques to create a printing block and stamps which can be combined to introduce a second colour to your hand printed and original cards. You will be able to take your blocks and stamps away with you to continue printing at home.
All materials will be provided but please bring a scalpel or small craft knife with a sharp blade. An apron and an old newspaper would also be useful.
Join Becky Dunn for some relaxed creativity decorating wreaths for Christmas. Natural clematis wreaths and some fresh greenery, fir cones, dried orange slices, etc. will be provided. You are welcome to bring along your own greenery (holly, ivy, fir or laurel) and any other festive decorations such as ribbons, dried fruit, nuts, etc.
